University Honors Scholars

The University Honors Scholars Program offers a distinctive curriculum. Scholars participate in four exclusive, interdisciplinary, year-long seminars designed to meet most of their general education requirements.

Other Honors courses, such as a designated section for calculus and U.S. history, are highly interactive and taught by outstanding faculty known for their quality instruction and research in their respective fields.

As a University Honors Scholar, you complete these curriculums with your class, which gives you greater opportunities for in-depth investigation, discussion, and development of your personal abilities and goals.

Honors Scholars complete a Senior Honors Thesis in their major area of study, a product of a yearlong research project with a faculty mentor.

University Honors Scholars will receive a scholarship package that includes full tuition and fees, a book allowance of $150 per semester, and a standard on-campus housing and meal package. Upgrading to a private room or more expensive dorm made be possible with the student assuming the difference in the cost of the standard housing and the cost of the upgrade. Tennessee residents are expected to apply for the Hope Lottery Scholarship program.  Students who receive the Tennessee lottery scholarship will find their award adjusted to conform with the maximum allowed by the university and will have their book allowance increased to $1000 per semester.

Honors freshmen and sophomores must live on campus.
